After Dark My Sweet (CD)
Julie's Haircut is a six-piece Italian psych-prog rock group whose previous record 'Adult Situations' (2003) was the first to be internationally distributed. Most of this album - their fourth - was recorded from live studio improvisations, giving it a jazzy, psychedelic feel. Many of the songs are long sonic journeys, taking in elements of Electric Prunes, Mike Oldfield and especially Ummagumma-era Pink Floyd and are mostly instrumental. I get a vision of the ideal conditions for hearing this record as being sitting around in an army surplus greatcoat with your wacky baccy, staring at the sleeve for clues as the vinyl plays on the gramophone and your dad shouts at you to get yer hair cut. It's an acquired taste but the proggers among us might like the Moog wailings and guitar build up of 'Gemini Pt 1 and Pt 2' while 'Satan Eats Seitan' has a propulsive Krautrock force that's worth hearing. 'Ingrid Thulin', on which Sonic Boom appears, is a huge mountain of a song with guitars on top of jazzy piano and vibes all of which sit on an insistent drum beat. It's a real 'trip' into the past and, apart from the CD technology on which it's presented, almost as if the last 30 years never happened!
